  • A famous saying is that risk and return go hand in hand. The more risk you take the more return you wish to obtain.
  • Risk can be measured in various ways, on a portfolio level and an instrument level. It all depends on you as an investor to decide how much risk you want to take.
  • An individual stock can be risky when that one stock quotes for 90% of your portfolio but if that one stock is only 3% of your portfolio the risk is much lower as the concentration of that stock is lower.
